We are the only villa on the market offering a full time staff of six at no additional charge, including houseman and professional chef. It's just one more thing that makes Spyglass the preeminent vacation rental destination in the entire Zihuatanejo/ Ixtapa region.
This two acre oceanfront enclave features epic views of the Pacific and lush tropical gardens surrounding a 10,000 square foot villa. Spyglass has nine bedrooms and eleven baths -- as unique as it is luxurious. The open air design seamlessly connects the indoor and outdoor at every turn. The villa features upstairs and downstairs kitchens, a dining room that seats 20, expansive media room, and a fully stocked professional barroom. There's a second story Great room, and a large, furnished balcony. Spyglass is tastefully decorated with tasteful and authentically local Mexican decor.
Just steps outside the main villa is fully furnished sitting pavilion, complete with flat screen TV and sound system. It's a perfect gathering place for whale watching and sunsets. Don't miss our custom built bird aviary next to our large organic garden, which supplies much of the fresh produce enjoyed by our guests.
One level down you'll discover a freshwater swimming pool with attached kiddie pool. You'll enjoy our huge thatched roof pavilion with wet bar, sound system, bathroom and gorgeous outdoor shower. The views from the pool are like all the views at the Spyglass villa are something to write home about.
In the mood for adventure? Just go down the stone stairway, through lush tropical gardens to the ocean, where you'll savor an exhilarating 12 foot deep infinity edge salt water swimming pool complete with its own waterfall, sun deck and designated bathroom. Perched just above the saltwater swimming pool you'll discover yet another fully furnished pavilion, including wet bar and sound system.
A few steps away just above the ocean you'll discover our spectacular honeymoon master suite. From the gentle sound of the waves breaking on the rocks below to the stunning views of endless coastline, our honeymoon suite is one of the most romantic and elegant settings anywhere.
Experience our handmade seaside relaxation room, crafted from all natural materials and nestled into the hillside adjacent to the honeymoon suite. This room includes a catwalk with rustic rope & pole railing. It's just one of many private areas of the Spyglass villa to relax, read, meditate, or take an old-fashioned nap.
The villa's expansive grounds include over 8,000 square feet of terraced patios and lush tropical gardens. The world class vistas and pristine beaches of Spyglass provide intimate settings, privacy, and wondrous adventures for all ages.
Pristine La Barrita beach is five minutes by foot, and three minutes by car. This unspoiled, uncrowded beach features quaint mom and pop restaurants serving fresh locally-caught seafood. The beach is protected by a gentle outcropping of rocks to the south, making it perfect for swimming, boogie boarding, or just working on your tan.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: I was born and raised in Eugene Oregon where I developed a love of nature and and deep appreciation for the outdoors, especially the mountains and the ocean! I first came to Zihuantanejo in 1980 while working for a world renowned artist who had a second home Here. I spent every winter in Zihuantanejo until one day in 2001, while exploring in my jeep, I discovered La Barrita, the future home of Spyglass. I then spent the next seven years pouring my heart and soul into creating what I believe to be one of the most unique and enchanting villas anywhere to be found. Now it's time to share that experience! While my business responsibilities keep me in East Hampton New York much of the year, I return to Spyglass frequently to enjoy, as well as to oversee the ongoing improvements that make the Spyglass experience second to none!.
Why the Owner Chose Zihuatanejo: I found this particular area to be the most beautiful place on all the Pacific Coast and fell in love with it at first sight!
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Thanks to our unique geographical elevations, Spyglass is blessed with some of the most spectacular and dramatic views that the Pacific ocean has to offer. Those same unique geographical components also make our site extremely private!
We are also blessed with an artisan well. So unlike many of our competitors, we have an endless supply of fresh water which allows us to maintain our beautiful gardens which are woven into every square inch of our property.
Spyglass truly is, an enchanting place!
